Caddo Farmer Buys Purebred Percheron Stallion at Sale
A total of $8,762 changed hands on February 22 for purebred Percheron draft hoses offered at the first consigned sale of the Oklahoma Purebred Horse and Mule Association at Stillwater, Okla. Eighteen mares averaged $302 each, the top mare selling for $630. 16 stallions brought an average of $207 each. These animals were not in show flesh and most of them had just been brought in from winter pasture.
Among the buyers present was J. A. Wells of Caddo, who purchased the purebred Percheron stallion, Hileux 213209, consigned to the sale by W. B. House of Nardin, Okla.
Hileux is a black four year old of double Carnot breeding. His sire, Laddy Boy 191156, is a great grandson of the famous $40,000 Carnot, one of the most colorful stallions in Percheron history, and his dam, Lady 199238, is also a descendant of this famous stallion.
